I was asked to run a crafting group on the court here (we live on an estate for the older person) on 24th August. It involved a lot of organisation and preparation as I put together 2 card kits and a bookmark kits and made enough for 20 to take part. I was extremely nervous - I hate talking out in a group - but it went very well apart from the initial "speech". Everyone enjoyed themselves and we had a laugh. In fact they enjoyed it so much I've agreed to run a Christmas cards and tag session during the half term week (last week in October). It should be a little easier this time but will still need a lot of preparation.
I had hoped to start on my Christmas cards but only made 1! I did manage to buy up loads of Christmas stash in anticipation :) I also bought a Slice (electric cordless die cutting machine). It arrived last week and I love it. It sits nicely on my PC/craft desk. I did make a Christmas card yesterday:It's with a free pyramid card topper from CraftsUPrint. I layered it up and then added glitter glue to the angel wings and main star. I added mirri card in red and gold and then stuck it on to red card. A bit of gold glitter ribbon and the sentiment (from CraftsUPrint) and it's done. Sorry the picture is a little dark the light wasn't too good yesterday afternoon. The other Christmas card I made was using a fabric square which I bought at Wroxham Barns (Norfolk) during the holidays and had to try it out: I am going to try posting more often but if you don't see me for a while please don't worry. A colleague left at school and I'm working extra hours and it seems to be extra manic at the moment.
Thanks for looking, hope you are all well :)
